There is a part of you, your subconscious mind, that is always listening and brings to you that which you speak of. You may name it good or bad, but the subconscious (SC) only knows what you say and gives it back to you. So with that understanding, it is not only a good idea, it is a great idea to simply be conscious of the words that come out of your mouth. And actually, to be aware of where you allow your thoughts to dwell for any length of time.
A perfect example of that is to be sitting in front of an open fireplace and a spark flies out onto your sleeve. If you flick it off quickly, it does no harm. If you do not, it will burn a hole in your sleeve. It’s the same thing with your thoughts. A thought comes into your mind; you either let it pass or you choose to dwell on it. If it’s what you want to create in your life, keep it; if not, flick it off. Choose a thought that makes you happier, that fills your heart, that makes you feel good. You get to choose. A friend recently shared with me that in business, the trend is to hire happy people rather than only considering credentialed people.
Obviously you cannot control those random thoughts that come and go, come and go, all through the day. You only have respite when you fall asleep and are in the land of unconsciousness, asleep in the higher realms of the ethers. Some of us dream and some just fall into a deep sleep; however, it is of no consequence. What is of consequence is the realization that you are a creating machine.
You create constantly either what you want or what you don’t want, so choose to focus on what you do want; and remember to choose from a place of gratitude, of giving thanks, for that which you want to attract into your life. Gratitude is a great attracting factor with very powerful energy attached to it. So why not be done with dwelling on thoughts that are not contributing to your highest good, which keep you focused on lack and limitation of what you think you do not have.
Actually we already have it. We already have everything we need. It is right there waiting for us to say thank you and allow it in.
We can practice that today. How many times can we say thank you, thank you, thank you, and receive that which is already ours with an open mind and an open heart.
